The Hudson Valley Region
Numerous towns and cities call the Hudson Valley region home, from Newburgh to Kingston to Rhinebeck. With its distinctive balance of nature and culture, there’s no shortage of things to see, do, and experience in the Hudson Valley area. Hudson River towns, like Beacon and Poughkeepsie, enjoy waterfront views and activities, and scenic hikes and bike trails are readily available to the towns that are nestled among the Shawangunk and Catskill Mountains, like Woodstock and New Paltz.
